Our most comprehensive package of services:
The term ‘neuroplasticity’ refers to our brain’s quality of flexibility; it’s ability to learn new things and rewire itself. Thanks to our neuroplasticity, we can change old habits, develop new skills, and improve throughout our lifetime. This is good news for anyone who suffers from physical discomfort or pain, or has difficulties with posture or movement. And, it’s also good news for those who are curious about human learning, and interested in accessing more of their potential.
Dr. Feldenkrais knew how to access the power of the brain and provide it with the stimulation and conditions it needs to build new neural pathways, to improve neuromuscular and skeletal organization. On Saturday afternoon, April 15, join David Zemach-Bersin, one of this country’s most distinguished Feldenkrais® Teachers, to experience the miracle of your neuroplasticity in action.

I have long been intrigued by this subtle form of retraining the nervous system, which I currently recommend to patients whose movement has been restricted by injury, cerebral palsy, stroke, fibromyalgia, or chronic pain. I find it to be much more useful than standard physical therapy. I also believe that the Feldenkrais Method can help older people achieve greater range of motion, flexibility, and help us all feel more comfortable in our bodies.
